Hello Dieterman

 

You can send money to anyone with an email address but in order to claim the funds they would have to open a PayPal account.  What happens is that you send the money to their email address, they get an email letting them know they have received funds.  They are then instructed to follow the directions to open an account to receive the funds into their PayPal balance.  It is a very straightforward process and a new account can be set up very quickly.  Thanks for your great question and I hope you have a great day.
